Tofu – Protection From Prison

Tofu is a classic ingredient for cooking in K-Dramaland think for example for tofu stew.
But it is mostly seen in K-Dramaland when somebody is released from prison. A friend, family member or (ex-)brother(s) in crime will wait for the ex-convict with a block of tofu that he’ll eat raw. He follows the belief that you will never return to prison when eating pure tofu right after your release.
The tofu is always brought in a black plastic back that highlights the “purity”, i.e. the white color of the tofu.
